Expert Quotes:

Same coupe-like sportiness as the regular model
Cars.com

A mild hybrid, although you wouldn't know it from the not-so-mild hybrid stickers
MotherProof

Interior is handsomely designed
Motor Trend

Appearance-wise, the 2009 Saturn Vue Hybrid looks similar to the standard four-cylinder and V-6 versions of the Saturn Vue.

Reviews read by TheCarConnection.com approve of the general shape and profile of the Saturn Vue, with Cars.com reporting that the "Vue Hybrid features the same coupe-like sportiness as the regular model." MotherProof adds that the 2009 Saturn Vue Hybrid "is darn cute" and "more refined and curvy than the previous generation." However, reviewers aren't so impressed with the generous helping of "Hybrid" decals that have found their way onto the Saturn Vue Hybrid's exterior—MotherProof notes all of the "flashy details on the exterior" can be fun, but combined with the plethora of hybrid decals, "it's just too much." On the positive side, Kelley Blue Book feels that the Saturn Vue Hybrid's "bold styling and rich interior might represent key victories in the battle for the hearts and minds" of consumers, who thus far have favored models like the Honda CR-V and Toyota RAV4. In terms of actual styling elements, Kelley Blue Book raves that, "with its big and bold front end, trendy side vents and sloping roofline, the 2009 Saturn Vue is among the sportiest-looking SUVs in the segment."

The interior of the 2009 Saturn Vue Hybrid is a winner as well, and reviewers are unanimously impressed with the work done by the Saturn design team. Motor Trend reports that the "interior is handsomely designed," while Kelley Blue Book heaps praise on the "comfortable and attractive interior." The dashboard features a clean, intuitive layout, and Edmunds says that the "controls are simple and well marked." ConsumerGuide agrees, noting that "everything is well laid out and easy to see," especially the "large and clear" gauges.

Conclusion

The 2009 Saturn Vue Hybrid boasts a handsome cabin and sporty exterior design.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
